Good morning,
Southern Utah University is excited to announce the creation of an on-campus daycare and preschool center. Receiving a generous donation from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation, SUU is finally able to move forward on the long-awaited project.


The Sorenson Legacy Foundation Child & Family Development Center will be committed to the retention and graduation of SUU students by providing a high quality facility offering on-campus childcare, a preschool lab, and parent and family support.
With flexible care hours and an on-campus location, the new center will be convenient, affordable and a safe option for SUU students. The facility will offer drop-off care instead of all-day care, which will significantly lower the cost for parents. Having the preschool and daycare in the same place will decrease operation and maintenance costs making it more efficient.


The estimated cost of the project is $2.5 million and half of the funding has already been raised. A location has been secured and the center will be built south of the Multipurpose Building on the corner of 700 West. The child care facility will be able to serve roughly 80 to 100 students and their children each year. The goal is to have the facility completed by fall of 2019.
